Appropriate Force is the 2288th episode of The Bill

Officers are bemused when Insp Gold orders the use of stop-and-search powers in her clampdown on youth disorder. Sgt Weston and PC Brown attend a disturbance at a bank by a female customer who smells of petrol. Sgt Stone believes he recognises the m.o. from a series of aggravated burglaries, and he and Sgt Smith go to the woman's house, where they find her family bound and gagged and doused in petrol. Convinced he knows who is behind the incident, Stone is determined to bring him to justice.
